I never get bored of reading about Bletchley Park. There is always some nugget of information new to me that crops up in the shortest of articles posted to the web. This article by Paul Ridden of GizMag is epic. GizMag does not normally have articles of this length but it seems an exception has been made and rightly so. It’s a great tale. A story that is still growing. A story that many of the people reading this should be proud to be a part of.

Hi Lin,I never forget you guys.. 🙂 To me it’s like mentioning the house and not the computer room. When ever I visit BPark I always make a b-line to TNMOC. It’s one of the best bits and in no way a separate entity in my mind.Who knows.. BPark may get all the funding it needs and more then buy up TNMOC and save us from all this separatism.. 😉
Why *IS* TNMoC the forgotten relative? I get annoyed every time I see articles on Bpark that are mainly about TNMoC exhibits yet fail to give them a mention. Every time BPark is mentioned as the home of Colossus it is great PR for BPark but what nobody ever mentions is. that not only don’t the Rebuild Project get a share of the entry fees but they have to pay rent for the privilege. I don’t doubt everyone benefits but I would love to know how one sided or mutually beneficial the relationship between the various exhibitors actually is.Anyhow this is not the place to get into that discussion. I loved the article (which did mention TNMoC) and your video. Thanks to Paul for the article, you for the post and video, and to Lin for adding the missing link.
